Back in time

6 September 2022

Artist: CAPTAIN BEEFHEART AND HIS MAGIC BAND
Who: Unruly blues rockers (1964-1982) led by the influential
loudmouth/poet Don Van Vliet (1941-2010) aka Captain Beefheart.

Anniversary album: ICE CREAM FOR CROW
Released: 6 September 1982 – 40 years ago
The band’s 12th LP

AllMusic/Ned Raggett: “It’s a last entertaining blast of wigginess from one of the few truly independent artists in late 20th century pop music, with humor, skill, and style all still intact (as even the song titles like “Semi-Multicoloured Caucasian” and “Cardboard Cutout Sundown” show). With the Magic Band turning out more choppy rhythms, unexpected guitar lines, and outré arrangements, Captain Beefheart lets everything run wild as always, with successful results.” Score: 4.5/5.
